Voting Is A Right, Not A Test

Every time we write about voting rights and giant purges of voter rolls in states like Georgia, and Ohio, and Wisconsin, we always get lots of responses along the lines of:

  1. People don’t always trust the government to be fully open about why they’re being asked to provide the state with information about themselves. That’s especially true if they’re relying on the state for some kind of assistance.
  2. People think they probably won’t want to vote, but then a candidate or issue comes along that captures their attention and changed their mind. (As happened in the Ohio case we just discussed). They should be able to change their mind. And it should be super-easy for them to do that, not super-hard.
